Financial engineering is one of the fastest growing areas of applied mathematics. In the Master of Mathematical Finance (MMF) program, students reshape their existing analytical abilities with the help of senior academics in mathematics, computer science, statistics, and engineering who have experience with the tools of mathematical finance. This cross-disciplinary approach develops graduates with a richer, more innovative approach to applied mathematics in real-world situations. Some of the faculty are seasoned practitioners from the financial industry while others are from leading firms in the financial software industry, developing applications around requirements like risk management, portfolio analysis, and the pricing of advanced derivatives.
The heart of the program is the four-month internship or campus project. Working on real financial projects, students learn to integrate and apply theoretical knowledge gained earlier in the program. In the internship, students team with employees of the sponsoring firm to experience how financial mathematics impacts the decision-making processes of a financial services organization.
